US President Joe Biden has spoken to Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the phone. In his first phone call, Biden indicated that he wanted to deepen relations with India.
In addition, climate and democratic values have gained importance in the discussions of both.
A statement from the White House said, “Biden and Modi have pledged to work together to win the Covid-19 epidemic.” In addition to tackling climate change, the two countries have agreed to work on a partnership basis for global economic restructuring and counter-terrorism in a way that benefits the people of both countries.
